4. Provide the students with access
Flipped learning is not all about the technique, even though the technique can be an important parameter in the teaching method.
To prepare the course like described above, the technique can sometimes be a barrier. Many schools use online teaching systems, such as moodle or other platforms where teacher can share for example texts, videos, links, tests and projects to students. In that case it is easy for teachers to make a complete course set up, so the course plan gets visual for the students. If the teacher does not have access to an online teaching system, it is possible to use more simple solutions to share contents with the students, such as google docs or simply youtube. It is important to not let the technique stop the development of new teaching methods, there is always a solution.
Teachers that want to make pre recorded lectures, can do it in many ways - both simple and more advanced. The teacher can start with simply using PowerPoint where he can record his voice while scrolling through the slides. Lectures can also be recorded by many different apps on a simple tablet, for eksempel iPad. The more advanced way is to use more complicated software, such as TechSmith screen recording, video editing and hosting solutions.
In many courses the teacher is able to find supporting material online. For example in mathematics it’s possible to find a lot of supporting material, tutorials and explanations that can help students to understand. In that case the teacher would not be forced to record his own lectures, he could just pick the best online recordings for his students and guide them how to use it.
Give students access to videos.
